Steve Martin has a new book scheduled to release November 15th, 2022 called “Number One Is Walking: My Life in the Movies and Other Diversions“. It is an illustrated memoir with drawings by Harry Bliss. I’ve been a fan of Martin’s since I was a kid in the 1970s and watch him now on the terrific Hulu show, “Only Murders in the Building”. Plus he worked at Disneyland in the 50s/60s at the Magic Shop, which is cool. Here is information on “Number One Is Walking: My Life in the Movies and Other Diversions“!
Number One Is Walking is Steve Martin’s cinematic legacy―an illustrated memoir of his legendary acting career, with stories from his most popular films and artwork by New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss.
Steve Martin has never written about his career in the movies before. In Number One Is Walking, he shares anecdotes from the sets of his beloved films―Father of the Bride, Roxanne, The Jerk, Three Amigos, and many more―bringing readers directly into his world. He shares charming tales of antics, moments of inspiration, and exploits with the likes of Paul McCartney, Diane Keaton, Robin Williams, and Chevy Chase. Martin details his forty years in the movie biz, as well as his stand-up comedy, banjo playing, writing, and cartooning, all with his unparalleled wit.
With gorgeously illustrated cartoons and single-panel “diversions” in Steve and Harry’s signature style, Number One Is Walking is full of the everyday moments that make up a movie star’s life, capturing Steve Martin’s singular humor and acclaimed career in film. The perfect gift from the team who brought you the #1 New York Times bestseller A Wealth of Pigeons.
